FS: 1968 Gibson EB-2d Cherry with Curtis Novak custom pup
I thought I'd put this beauty up here first as I'd rather not have to go the ebay route, so here goes...
This is a gorgeous example of the Gibson EB-2d hollowbody, other than some typical nicks, the finish and binding are in excellent condition, no breaks anywhere. This is the rarer 2 pickup version too! The bass plays like a dream, neck is straight, action feels great, I tend to like it pretty low personally.
I bought this bass about a year or so ago, and instantly fell in love with it. Although I did find that even though it has the 2 pick ups, I still had trouble finding a sound that fit in with my band, I play a Fender Jazz through an Orange rig and have gotten used to that, this is a whole other sound! I recently bought a Curtis Novak pup to try for the neck position and it opened up the sound nicely. This one here: http://curtisnovak.com/pickups/EB-AA.shtml
I still have the original neck pickup, and as far as I know, other than obviously changing the pup, this is all original, including the case. I am not 100% of the knobs though, usually they are the black witch hats, but I've also seen the ones on my bass in some pictures, so maybe they are original. Also,behind the headstock, the original owner scratched in some number, but it's not very noticeable unless you hit it with the right light.
I was not anticipating thinking about selling this, I really don't want to. Something came up at this years NAAM that I want badly(synth content) and this could help fund that. I'm asking $2350 shipped in the CONUS. Any questions, ask away!
